Editor’s Review of Decameron Los Cocos

This is one of the most colorful hotels you'll ever visit. The Decameron Los Cocos boasts 16 different exterior colors, all vivid and tropical, highlighting walls, balconies and stairways of the five main buildings of this hotel. The festive environment is just the top coat of a great family getaway that celebrates the sun, the surf and family.

Configured like a small town square covering 4 acres, the Decameron has five buildings housing 240 guestrooms with three restaurants, a playground. mini-golf course and other services brightly linked together. The beach is one of the longest in the area and the surf remarkably calm, but the coordinated activities on the beach and availability of other fun around the property create anything but
... more a low-key family vacation.

The Decameron Los Cocos is the only all-inclusive resort on the Rincón de Guayabitos, a meandering community snuggled up against the curvature of the Jaltemba Bay, whose nickname is "the pool of the Pacific." An island out in the bay called Crab Island helps slow the waves coming from the ocean, creating one of the most genteel vacation settings you can find on North America's west coast.
Snorkeling or scuba trips to Crab Island, organized by services at the resort, are a great outing, as is the whale watching. Humpback whales apparently love the calm surf as much as humans. Some days in the winter months, it's possible to watch the whales at play from your balcony.

Few details have been overlooked in planning family activities here. The focus is outdoors with an extensive selection of sports and games for all ages. But despite the organization and array of events to choose from, the resort still has plenty of places for peace and quiet and downtime. less

Rooms at the Decameron are spacious with plenty of room for a crib or rollaway bed. All of the rooms have full balconies or terraces. The complex has only seven connecting rooms, so if that's important, book early. However, there are no refrigerators or DVD players available in the rooms, nor tubs in the bathrooms. The hotel property has a strong Wi-Fi signal throughout. Colorful headboards shaped like flowers and towel art make any time in your room a lot more fun.

Tip: The most popular building is Cocos #1. You can sit on your balcony and watch whales jumping in the bay from late November to April. This building is also closest to two of the three restaurants.

Each building has four floors and your choices are rather simple - two double beds or one king bed with a crib or rollaway. But don't take that to mean the rooms are simple or boring. A colorful décor, flat-screen TVs, generous sized bathrooms and those fabulous balconies make the rooms quite comfortable.
